  • Covers key topics in pediatric vestibular failures from the mechanism to clinical treatments
  • Describes in detail the clinical applications of the VEMP (vestibular evoked myogenic potential), Caloric Test and Rotation Chair method for an in-depth understanding of the evaluation of vestibular disorders
  • Addresses the needs of those working in various fields of such as pediatric otolaryngology, audiology, neurology, neonatology and rehabilitation
Many congenitally deaf infants and children suffer vestibular failure, which produces problems with their postural control, locomotion, and gait. However it is known that these children can eventually catch up with their normal balance control status in terms of development and growth as a result of central vestibular compensation. In Vertigo and Balance Disorders in Children the author provides comprehensive and integrative information on the vestibular system. The materials presented range from the history of its study, basic anatomy and physiology of vestibular organs, and the mechanism of balance and motor function development, to clinical aspects of vestibular disorders including their evaluation and pediatric neurology. Although there have been books discussing postural responses of infants and children with vestibular disorders, this is the first to present the influence of peripheral vestibular disorders and central vestibular compensation comprehensively. This book will benefit not only practitioners in this field such as pediatric otolaryngologists, pediatricians, and neurologists treating both children and adults, but also clinical specialists such as neonatologists, physical therapists, and speech therapists, helping them to better care for patients with vestibular failure.
